    If the pilgrim rests, he might as well be dead.

    2 for me.

    This place feels creepy. Like a false sense of safety. Shit is gonna go down if we stay any longer.

    1 - I wonder if the pilgrim will finish his prayer. Besides, this is a place our friend visits often. Maybe they might know him better than he thinks.

    Vyck's character fascinates me:

    I don't quite know what to make of all this yet, but it's obvious that this guy is hell of a lot more dangerous than Kurze ever was. I wonder if others of this order have had a similar procedure done to them as well.

    The impression that he seemed to wish to convey was that he was more of a carefree, laid-back party guy. Thankfully, everyone here seems to notice that there's a lot of menace underneath Fedor's jovial demeanor.

    root, if I may, a few questions:

    What sort of strange devices did Pilgrim see? (Sorry, I don't know how to roll die) Also, was Kurze part of the Optikos as well? Is that why their operation blacked out five years ago? Also:

    What do we know of the hierarchy among the Optikos? Vyck is the Quaestor's underling, but do we know who is above the Quastor in the chain of command? It's interesting that Vyck mentions bosses, as in plural, which implies that these two don't occupy a very senior position in the organization. They're clearly important in some way, and they are probably not expendable like Pilgrim is, but there seem to be quite a few people here that outrank them.

    I am going with 2 based on the bad vibe I'm getting, but if I wasn't so paranoid, I'd vote to stick around and give our character's mind some rest. We certainly could use it after the sanity-straining trials that we've faced.

    Well, it was just my brain going all conspiracy-mode for a second:

    Kurze disappeared into the Duskhold initially to convert the locals, and I figured if he disappeared at the same time the Mirthwater Optikos went dark five years ago, that there might be a connection between the two events. Just some paranoid Codexian speculation, basically, though as this passage shows, the timelines obviously don't add up.

    MYSTARY - but then if Severian is a lying bastard, how would Issus have gotten sensitive knowledge like the location of the Godsblood? Assuming Issus isn't part of their order, he would have to have gotten such a crucial piece of information from a high-ranking insider.

    The paranoia I'm experiencing already is glorious. This is going to be a lot of fun.

    Will reserve my vote for now until I hear some of the arguments.

    root, what would have happened if we decided to stay at the brothel and fuck whores instead? I had the nagging sense of paranoia that something bad would happen and we would get offed by our "friends" because IT IS TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPLETE A CYOA WITHOUT PARANOIA. Of course, if there are spoilers or you'd rather keep us in the dark for whatever reason, I understand.

    Will provide my thoughts on this vote shortly.

    What could go wrong with a lie? :troll:

    Let's try and use this to our own gains. That's what all this is about, no? But first, a sliver of truth.
